The Purdue University Research Center in Economics (PURCE) hosts a number of events each year that highlight our faculty, their research, and the research's ability to help community groups, businesses, and government address economic challenges.

PURCE also hosts visitors to campus for lectures and more intimate conversations; many events are open to the public while some are reserved for students or PURCE partners and supporters.

Policy Luncheon or Livestream

We are pleased to offer a monthly policy talk both in-person and via Zoom. 

In December, PURCE will host Dr. Larry DeBoer, professor emeritus, Agricultural Economics at Purdue.

Supply chain disruptions, inflation, and COVID-19 can and will affect property values, incomes, levies, and costs. For those local governments that rely mostly on property taxes, how will their budgets be impacted?

This largely depends on property tax assessment procedures and controls. In Indiana, local governments raise more revenue from property tax than any other tax. DeBoer will analyze Indiana’s situation. Your host will be PURCE Kozuch Director Kevin Mumford, and there will be a Q&A following Dr. DeBoer’s talk.

Join us either in-person OR virtually:
